Preparing for Faculty Job Applications Series: 'Writing Diversity Statements'
With growing dedication to inclusivity and accessibility, educational institutions frequently ask for explicit statements about our diversity-responsive beliefs and practices. There is little research to date about how hiring committees are evaluating these statements but some common expectations are becoming clear. We'll help you identify and articulate your investment in inclusive and diversity-responsive teaching, research, and service. We will alternate individual writing exercises and brief discussions to systematically work through conceptualizing and drafting (or revising) your diversity statement.
Facilitator: Dr. Mascha Gemein, Assistant Professor of Practice, University Center for Assessment, Teaching & Technology
